Oh, that's terrible. How could anyone NOT know that that was a phrase to be 
looked up before you tried to pronounce it? Surely they do more than one 
take for a professional actor's reading? I could *maybe* see this kind of 
thing being let go when it's a volunteer reading for Books for the Blind or 
something like that. Not when they're paying someone.
